Nature / Park
Strolling around Vaca Brava Park you will be struck by the contrasting colors of your surroundings. A small green forest filled with an abundance of native flora and home to many small animals, surrounds a large dark blue lake with a fountain at its center. The peaceful atmosphere is a welcome relief from the city, which you can see looming on the park’s periphery. With plans set out in the 1950s, this 79,800 sq m (20 acres) park was to replace a disease-ridden swamp on the site, and it was finally completed in 1996. The locals use the running track and exercise stations, but this place is also perfect for some serious R & R. A couple of hours and a few coconut waters later you will feel completely re-energized.

Where to stay in Goiania

High-quality and varied accommodation options exist throughout Goiania, with the main concentration located in the central district. Overlooking some of the nicest green areas, such as parks and zoos, you'll find a number of the more exclusive hotels with luxury rooms offering excellent views. Budget-conscious travelers will want to avoid the main touristy plazas and look for the pleasant hostels and smaller hotels located on the side streets. Move away from the center, and choice becomes more limited, though residential areas do include some rental apartments--ideal for those planning longer stays in Goiania.
